Tasty Vegan Coffee Recipe (Simple And Healthy Version)

By | July 4, 2016

Most of us love coffee. But making it taste good usually requires adding milk and refined sugar. This renders the coffee unhealthy. Also, many people would like to cut back on their daily saturated fats, trans fats, refined sugars, cholesterol, hormones, etc. intake. So, why not Veganize your coffee whilst keeping it healthy and tasty?! Let’s get right to it.

Vegan Coffee

 


Ingredients:

  • 25 grams of cashew nuts (or 25 grams of almonds; or 350 mL of cold unflavored, unsweetened, unfortified, natural, ready-to-drink soy milk).
    Cashew nuts - 25 grams

    NOTE: Almost everyone will love the taste imparted by the use of cashew nuts, which is why it is the first choice above. But feel free to try the other alternatives mentioned after you have tried making the coffee with cashew nuts. You may not like them as much as cashew nuts, or you may like them even more than cashew nuts. It depends upon your taste. Also, using soy milk makes the coffee low in fat and at the same time high in protein and calcium.

  • 375 mL of cold water (or just 25 mL of cold water if you are using soy milk in the above ingredient).
    Water - 375 mL
  • 3 grams of instant coffee (use coffee or coffee+chicory mixture, your choice).
    Instant Coffee - 3 grams
  • 70 grams of deseeded dates (or 70 grams of dried deseeded dates a.k.a. Khaarak in Hindi).
    Dates - 70 grams

Servings:

2 if you are not me or like me. :P :P :P
1 if you are me or like me. :D :D :D

Skill Level:

Beginner/Noob

 


Steps:

  1. Put all the ingredients into the blender.
  2. Blend till no huge particles are left in the blender (around 2-5 minutes depending upon how powerful your blender is).
  3. Pour the blended mixture into a good looking cup (after years of research, scientists have proven that the more beautiful your coffee cup is, the more luscious your coffee will taste! ;) ;) ;) ).
  4. Put 10-20 mL of water in the blender, mix it properly with the mixture stuck on the walls of the blender and then pour it into the good looking cup (I condemn wastage of food! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ).

 


Note:

  • You may adjust the quantity of nuts and/or water to make the coffee thicker or thinner according to your preference.
  • You may put more than 3 grams of instant coffee if you want a very strong coffee flavor, or less than 3 grams of instant coffee if you do not like a strong coffee flavor.
  • You may use a filter if you want your coffee to be absolute liquidy. I personally never filter because I like the rough and thick texture and rather than drinking it directly, I actually drink it with a huge spoon, taking all the time in the world to enjoy the wonderful taste of this beverage I just prepared! :) :) :)
  • You can consume this beverage daily as it is 100% healthy. Do not consume this beverage after evening, though. I myself drink it once in the morning and once before the evening begins!
  • You should consult with a healthcare professional if you have or suspect you might have a health problem before thinking of consuming this beverage regularly.
